Yup - Abbey Road is a very nice LP.

Right now I'm listening to Genuine Houserockin' Music II, an Alligator Records blues sampler LP. Pretty good. Just finished Ten Years After Shhh, and some Lonnie Brooks is up next.

Today I was listening to Waiting For Columbus, by Little Feat. Recorded live in 1978, this CD ROCKS!!!!! All recordings include Lowell George, so it's the real deal. http://www.amazon.com/Waiting-Columb.../dp/B0000631ED

Get this, download it, it's great.

A short review:
This 1978 live album remains a serious contender for one of the best live rock albums ever etched, standing toe to toe with live classics from the Band, Allman Brothers, and the Who. Recorded during concerts in London and Washington, D.C., Waiting for Columbus vividly captures the L.A. sextet at a crossroads between its swampy mid-'70s fusion of blues, country, and New Orleans R&B, and the more eclectic jazz accents introduced later in the decade. If the late Lowell George's influence had diminished in the studio, his presence dominates here in rowdy, righteous vocals, the mercurial tang of his indelible slide guitar, and a set-list laced with his songs. While still riveting in its initial, abridged CD release, this remastered two-disc edition expands and resequences the songs into a full concert set, with encore. Two deleted tracks are further augmented by 10 additional performances to make this a definitive edition of a classic album that really will "boogie your speakers away." --Sam Sutherland

Ummmmmm........ we're talking ALBUMS here. Actual vinyl LP's. Read the OP.

But yeah - I listened to my Waiting For Columbus LP a few weeks ago. I consider it one of the top 5 live recording LP's.
